    I had the same reaction, but it gets better. I'd say you should stick with them.

    FWIW, the community is less hostile than in DOTA or LOL, which made it a lot more fun to play. Because it has more skillshots and a more limited perspective (i.e. it's harder), it's actually a...

    Agreed, but I think it would be nice for designers to encourage that stuff mechanically. You see a bit of this with some of the newer pen & paper RPGs -- even the new edition of D&D does it a bit....

    Well, different systems give you different types of progression and rewards. I only wish that CRPGs were a little more thoughtful about this stuff. Consider old-school...

    I remember a particular moment playing Morrowind when I realised that this wasn't just vapid sword and sorcery nonsense. Supercifially, it was and is, but at least one of the designers had read some...

    My take from this thread: consoles now include the worst bits of PCs, PCs are including the worst bits of consoles, you'll never truly escape The Videogames.

    Speaking of, Unreal World just got a new patch. Lots of fun, if dying of frostbite is your idea of fun.

    The game's far from perfect, but I don't understand when I hear this criticism. I mean, the strategy is in the name of the game: go in quick and nasty, do some damage, get out even faster. FWIW, I...

    Dune 2. Try Dune 2000 if you want the non-chiptunes version. The original Dune game soundtrack is also good.

    Fallout. Mark Morgan etc. Fallout 3 for the pop songs.

    It's already had lunar colonies, in fact. What we really need is a TES game that isn't afraid to show off the insanity that's in it's own lore. But, yes, high-magi-tech would be fun.
